Crocodile lunch among eucalyptus trees

From Russia to Australia fly eighteen hours, with two transfers. This is if you choose a shortened route – through Tokyo. And if you get to the fifth continent via Amsterdam or Cairo (some Moscow travel agencies offer such flight options), then not a day is enough to reach Australian land. But having stood the test of many hours of flight, the tourist will undoubtedly be rewarded. Australia is, without any exaggeration, a unique country, with a completely unique wildlife, but at the same time very rich, extremely well-maintained and completely calm.

The most popular among foreigners is the state of Queensland, which is in the north-east of the country. It is best known for its Golden Coast and Great Barrier Reef. Every second tourist arriving in Australia comes there. On the Gold Coast, the traveler offers entertainment for every taste: a casino, scuba diving, horseback riding and light airplane walks over the ocean. And, of course, here is a real paradise for fans of surfing. Continue reading

Death in Venice – Life in Australia

Unconventional sexual orientation today has ceased to be a cause for criminal prosecution. But it is still annoying the masses who are not familiar with Thomas Mann’s short story “Death in Venice” and who do not believe in Tchaikovsky’s homosexuality. For the most part, people, if they do not blame homosexuals aloud, at least show an unhealthy curiosity about them. It is easy to imagine, for example, the reaction of a sunbathing layman who saw young men kissing on the beach. Or hugging young ladies. At best, giggles.

Representatives of sexual minorities are quite annoyed by this attitude. And they are forced to come up with more or less less crowded holiday destinations so that when they arrive at the resort with a loved one, they will not be the target of ridicule and indelicate remarks. Gays and lesbians have long chosen the Hemingway Key West in the States, the island of Mykonos in Greece. Not that heterosexuals were not allowed there, but homosexuals feel freer there.

Aboriginal meat

In the last century, Australia was called the “country of convicts” – dangerous criminals were sent here from England. Later the continent began to be settled by immigrants from other countries, bringing their customs, lifestyle and culinary traditions. Talking about local cuisine is not easy: like the country itself, it is still very young and is in its infancy. Here, with equal success, they prepare not only exotic Aboriginal dishes, but also food traditional for the Old World. Australian restaurants include kangaroo tail soup, crocodile beef steak or ostrich egg omelettes. Actually, this is exotic only for us – the indigenous people of Australia are simply used to cooking from what they have “at hand”, as in the whole world. Aborigines also often eat ostrich meat. According to some gourmets, it is very similar to rabbit meat. By the way, all kinds of dishes from the rabbit, considered in Australia as the number one enemy for farmers, are also very common and popular here. Continue reading
